    I would like to know can I use the ORD flip with a 56 inch rear spring on my 70 K5. I was hoping to use this combo in addition to an add a leaf to get around 6 inches of lift. I know if I use the flip with a stock 52 you get 4 inches of lift...what do get with the flip and a 56?

    depending on the arch of the spring they will be darn closeto the same. I do not think the 56s had much more if any more arch than 52s so you should be fine.

    piece of cake install. the 56's won't add any more lift as they mount in the same line as the 52's just a hanger 4" farther back.
